This is a very similar blend to that used in our Classic Cuvée sparkling wine but the significant portion of 2009 Chardonnay lends itself to being a leaner, more complex wine. Lemon green in appearance, with a fine continuous stream of bubbles. On the nose, this wine shows green apple aromas along with bready, nutty characters associated with the bottle lees aging. The palate is drier in style to allow the natural fruit and savoury characters to come through. Flavours start sweet and fruit forward with fresh apple and lemon rind characters and develop into savoury, biscuit and nuttiness. A long, interesting finish. Serve at 8 degrees.
